    Best of Silicon Valley. This is a great mix of young energy and older experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsYou work with the best talent in Silicon Valley. Catered food every night and cool hands on end product like Gopro.

    ConsHard work. Start up environment. Stock based compensation in a down market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the salary wages rising. The longer the wait for IPO the more stock that is vested and the less incentive stocks become.
